As you all may have noticed I have been absent from my blog for a long time; I don’t really have any reason other than an unmotivated heart. Writing is something I love to do but sometimes shit happens.
We all reach a time in our life where we are adrift and uncertain of what to do next. After I graduated college I was devoted and dead set on traveling and living in my dream. However, life had its own plan which was a bit hard to swallow but you just take it with a grain of salt. For sometime, I had almost given up my dreams and aspirations but getting up every time after you have fallen is the best part. People close to me did/do not support my aspirations and probably never will. It can be hard to go through hardships and endeavors when you feel alone but look I’m still here. I know what makes me happy and what I want; that’s the most important part. My life is mine not anyone else’s. People are always so infused in everyone else’s life, when yet they don’t even look at their own. Constant pressures and negative thoughts from others can affect you but only if you let it. DO WHAT YOU WANT!
I write this blog not only to show travel tips and my experiences but to hopefully give at least one other person the hope and encouragement they need. Thanks for reading my sappy post and hope to be back soon. Much love.
Greetings from Mexico,
Today I have officially been living in Mexico City for a little over a month which seems to feel like an eternity. I really enjoy living here and my Spanish is improving slowly but surely. It is very surprising how much you can still survive without knowing the language proficiently. Anyway, I have no idea where the next months will bring me but I will keep you updated. Much love. Xoxo.
My last Monday her in Mexico City can you believe it?! I had so many great times here as well and hard times. I really hope to return again by March. As I am expected to come for my primas quince. Which here is the 2nd biggest party in your life other than your wedding. On Sunday I am leaving to go to Europe insane! I have got so used to living here that things which I really noticed or bothered me, I notice no more. I am so used to speaking and hearing Spanish I think it will be weird to return to the American lifestyle.
Yesterday, was amazing we went to cuidad Santa Fe, it’s a part of Mexico City. It pretty much looks like a mini California with huge sky scrapers and many rich people. We went to the mountains there and looked at this museum not sure what it was called. It looked amazing and the air was so fresh and clean. We also did a lot of hiking and I ate some bomb food. We then went to the mall located in Santa Fe which is about the 3rd largest in all Latin or South American countries. Here I went ice skating with my prima. I taught her how to ice skate which is awesome because she will always remember that experience. She did a great job really. You should have seen the others dropping like a bag of potatoes. Hahah I kind of felt bad for some because they were so bad at it. It was a interesting.
We then finally returned home around 6pm. Then ate tacos and guacamole. Had some beers. Here is the only place perfectly acceptable to get kind of tipsy and go play basketball. Lol. I went and played with my aunt, uncle, and prima. It was so much fun. Being yesterday was Father’s Day which I usually never celebrate, it was great to celebrate with my uncle who is a great figure to his children. While playing basketball I saw just how much my uncle and my cousin were smiling and you could see the pure happiness in their face. Sometimes those are the moments I wish I could have had. I am glad though I could be a part of their moment. I enjoy the happiness of the little things.
I ate some American food here yesterday and it still was a let down ahah. Advice: never eat American food in other countries it tastes weird as f. Well talk soon!
Let me just say me:0 tequila:1 haha. Yesterday, I went out with my cousin and let’s just say it was interesting. My soul hurts from the drastic amounts of beer and tequila I had. We were at a house party then at 2am went to a dance club. My skills dancing to salsa are about as good as a baby learning how to walk..rough. Reggaeton yeah that’s easy. I ended up arriving home around 6am. I had fun and enjoyed my crazy antics haha.
Yesterday, I also went to the zoo with my family. It was ok there the animals looked very poorly taken care off. But dang lets just say there is some handsome looking Mexicans haha. Just had to point that out. If you ever come to Mexico make sure to go to Chapultepec. It is amazing with many things to do. You’ll see the river clowns, vendors, paddle boats, and much more. Also I held that yesterday hahah!!!😱
Time where has it gone?
So much has changed for me in the last year. I lost people and gained some people. My mistakes have taught me to know better. I am glad everything happened as I wouldn’t be who I am today. My stay here in Mexico is almost up, meeting my family for the first time, only speaking Spanish it was amazing. I will miss them but I will be back. My life will no longer be the same in two months. I am excited and scared for the future. But have high hopes for great travels and meeting new people.
Shout out to my few best friends and family for being the real mvps! You will always be in my heart and be with me wherever I go. I am thankful for you all. So sappy I know. Haha. So cheers to lost pathways and new beginnings.
